        Anatomie comparée transcendante. Principes d'embryogènie, de zoogénie et de tératogénie.

      Paris, Didot, 1859. ____ Première édition. Elle est illustrée par 26 planches lithographiées de monstruosités. Augustin Serres, collaborateur de Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, croyait qu'au cours de leur développement les organes des animaux supérieurs - dont l'homme - reproduisent la formes des organes équivalents des animaux inférieurs. DSB XII, 316 : "Serres's theoretical position was more closely akin to that of Geoffrey Saint-Hilaire, who regarded Serres as his collaborator. Serres believed that there was only one underlying animal type and that in the course of their development, the organs of the higher animals repeated the form of the equivalent organs in lower organisms." Cet ouvrage formait un des volumes des "Mémoires de l'Institut" que l'on vendait séparément. Bon exemplaire.*****. In-4. Collation : (2), XV, 942, (1) pp., (et 18 pages bis), 26 planches dépliantes. Demi-basane brune, dos lisse orné. (Reliure récente.).

Questo volume ripropone le novanta tavole su cui l'abate Domenico Benedetto Gravina (1807-1886) - facendosi coadiuvare da un gruppo di giovani disegnatori - riprodusse, con acuta competenza storico-artistica, l'intero complesso musivo del duomo normanno, dando così corso a una monumentale fatica editoriale (compiuta nel decennio 1859-1869) presso lo stabilimento tipografico palermitano di Francesco Lao, in collaborazione con la litografia Richter di Napoli.

Addirittura quest' ultimo impiantò a Palermo una sua litografia per portare a termine l' opera curata dal Gravina, e per questo firmò la stampa di quasi tutte le tavole cromolitografiche di cui l' opera si compone.

        Teesdale and Co's General Atlas of the World ... Containing Separate Maps of its Various Countries and States, and Exhibiting the Boundaries, Divisions, and Physical Features; also the British and Foreign Railways, Completed and Projected: together with Lines of Telegraph. Comprehended in Forty-Seven Maps, Including Ancient Maps of Greece, the Roman and Persian Empires, and Palestine. Revised and Corrected by the Late Dr. Arnold, Head Master of Rugby School ... The Whole Being Carefully Corrected to 1859.

      Folio (390 x 270mm). Contemporary half red roan gilt over cloth, spine gilt in compartments and lettered in one, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers; letterpress title and index, printed on the rectos of 2 bifolia, 44 double-page steel-engraved maps hand-coloured in outline, numbered [1]-25 and 28-46, one large folding steel-engraved map of India numbered '26 & 27' hand-coloured in outline and laid down on linen,and one double-page hand-coloured steel-engraved plate of the principal mountains and rivers of the world, all except the first two maps by and after John Dower; boards somewhat marked and scuffed, slight cracking on joints, occasional light spotting or browning, some maps with skilfully-repaired short tears on margins or folds, otherwise a good copy; provenance: 'Grace V. Pocock, 1861' (inscription on front flyleaf, most probably Grace Vernon Pocock (née Buzzacott, 1806-1868), wife of:) -- John Thomas Pocock (1814-1876, armorial bookplate on upper pastedown, and by descent). Teesdale's A New General Atlas of the World was first published in 1832 (with maps dated 1831), and further editions followed in 1835, 1836, 1837, 1838, etc. down to this (and possibly later) editions; all follow the format of this edition, with the same number of maps by John Dower (fl. 1838-1846) on the same subjects. However, the maps have been re-engraved to include the most recent discoveries (for example, the map of the United States shows 'recently acquired territories' and railways 'in progress, or projected'; Kane's discovery of 'North Grinnell Land' in 1855 is shown in the Arctic). This copy was previously in the collection of J.T. Pocock, who had left England for Australia as a young man, following the failure of his father's successful property development business. Sadly, the Australian settlement he was travelling to had failed, so he travelled to Cape Town, where he established a successful business and married Grace Vernon Buzzacott in 1841. The inscription 'Grace V. Pocock, 1861' is most probably that of his wife, with whom he visited London in 1861, but it is also possible that it is by their daughter, also called Grace Vernon (1843-1877). Cf. Phillips, Atlases 812 (ed. 'Corrected to 1854').

        ON LIBERTY

      John W. Parker and Son, London 1859 - 2nd edition, stated. 1859: London. A Very Good copy. 12 mo., 207 pp. Bound in the publisher's brown cloth, with the title on the spine in gilt. Red coated end papers and paste downs. The boards have mild edge wear, with some sunning, particularly the spine. Handsome book plate. Text is clean and bright, with wide margins. A Very Good copy. *** ON LIBERTY was first published in 1859. This second edition, was published the same year. Originally started as an Essay, it grew in size, and published as a book. Among the standards established in this work are Mill's three basic liberties of individuals, his three legitimate objections to government intervention, and his two maxims regarding the relationship of the individual to society "which together form the entire doctrine of Mill's Essay"; The nature and limts of power which can legitimately be exercised by society over the individual. ON LIBERTYwas a greatly influential and well received work, although it did not go without criticism. Some attacked it for its apparent discontinuity with Utilitarianism, while others criticized its vagueness. The ideas presented in On Liberty have remained the basis of much liberal political thought. *** [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Some Historical Notices of Cochin on the Malabar Coast.

      Cottayam: C.M. Press, 1859 - Octavo (pp. 44). Late 19th century green sand-grain cloth, gilt lettered front cover, blue original printed wrappers bound in. Wrappers somewhat stained and with some minor chipping, pale dampstain to fore-margin of frontispiece and title. Hand-coloured lithographic frontispiece and 2 similar plates, 2 lithographic plans coloured in outline. First edition and rare: OCLC locates just 5 copies and the copy at the British Library is the only one in British and Irish institutional libraries; no copy is recorded at auction. Possibly a presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the verso of the front wrapper: "With T.W's best regards". Thomas Whitehouse was a minister of the Government Church at Cochin. He writes in a breezy style, opening his brief history: "In the year A.D. 1500, the good folks living in the cocoanut topes which fringe the sea coast boundaries of the Cochin Rajah's Dominions, had their curiosity excited (so far as the enervating effects of a tropical sun in Lat. 10 degrees N. would admit) by the unusual sight of a fleet of ten or twelve strange looking ships, sailing towards the south, hugging the shore as much as they could with safety, and evidently looking out for a favourable haven". This is also a fragile survival from the Christian Mission Press that was established at Cottayam (or Kottayam) in the 1820s by the Yorkshire-born missionary Benjamin Baily.

        The Coming Man. A Tragedy

      Wraps. Very Good. An extraordinary love missive, from a lovelorn lady whose long wait for her suitor goes unrewarded. The suitor in the graphic story is a Mr. Jones, while the booklet bears the inscription of a John L. Flagg, dated September 11th, 1859. Was he in fact the suitor, or some confidante of the artist? Or was the story not autobiographical at all, but rather just a creative expression of the plight that women such as the presumed artist must endure? To us, it should be of little consequence either way, and who is to whether true or fictional makes the story the more poignant! The story is told in seven captioned pen and ink drawings that show a young lady with a hoop dress excitedly reading a letter from the beloved Mr. Jones that he would be coming. We then see her practicing on the mandolin for him, preparing a pudding for him, setting up a room for him, dressing up for him, waiting for him by a window, only to burst out in tears upon the receipt of a second letter than he wouldn't be coming. The drawings are the work of an accomplished amateur, in our judgment, their touch of naivete an aspect of their charm. The artist includes details such as furnishings and tschotschkes, but so with a sketchy economy that avoids distraction while convincingly conveying the setting. One might even say that in this she showed a sureness that transcends the typical amateur restraint. Perspective is only most loosely adhered to -- it is impossible to know whether this was a deliberate choice or not, but it also is something that curiously enhances the pictures. In terms of the artistry, the cleverest manifestation is unquestionably the title page in which she creates the lettering out of male and female full figures (and one horse) and the letters for "A Tragedy" out of their faces. The best word to describe this is "brilliant", and part of its brilliance is its subtlety -- one may well miss it at first glance. We assume the author/artist had initials "N.B." since the inscription states it is from N.B., but of this we can't be certain. We also can not tell whether the source were English or American, but we lean towards the latter, mainly because the young woman would appear to be of comfortable means and yet there is no sign of a servant, even when she prepares a pudding. That was unusual on both side sides of the ocean, undoubtedly, but probably less so in America. The setting up a room for Mr. Jones is also an enigma. Was she running an inn of sorts? Or was he a friend of the family? No respectable woman would be having a male caller stay overnight otherwise. 8vo. 22 by 16 cm. Eight leaves. Age toning and light wear.

        P.A.S. signée de Jules Falret : "Bulletin de santé de Mr Gustave"

      3 pages Vanve (asile), 18 janvier 1859, in-8, 3 pages, [132 x 200 mm], Intéressante pièce qui donne les observations de l'aliéniste Jules Falret sur l'un de ses patients : "Mr a bon appétit et son teint est meilleur que lors de son entrée. Mr se promène dans le parc avec plaisir mais, sous l'influence de son excitation maladive, il pousse des cris si perçants qu'on l'entend d'une extrémité du parc à l'autre..." Jules-Philippe-Joseph Falret (1824-1902), reçu internes des hôpitaux de Paris en 1847, passa deux années à la Salpêtrière avant de rejoindre la maison de santé de Vanves créée par son père Jean-Pierre (1794-1870) et par Félix Voisin. Il en reprend la direction en 1872, peu de temps après la mort de son père ; s'adjoint la collaboration de Jules Cotard jusqu'en 1889, puis de Léon-François Arnaud. Première page salie. ON JOINT : un billet autographe de Jules Falret, non signé, 2 pages sur un feuillet in-12 [110 x 175 mm]. Le fils y a noté des citations issues de l'ouvrage de son père, Jean-Pierre Falret, Des maladies mentales et des asiles d'aliénés : leçons cliniques et considérations générales (Paris, Baillière, 1864).

        The birds of America, from drawings made in the United States and their territories.

      New York: V.G. Audubon, Roe Lockwood & Son, 1859. 8vo (27.5 cm; 10.875"). 7 vols. I: [iii]–viii, [1], 12–246 pp., 70 plts. II: [iii]–vii, [2], 12–199 pp., 71–140 plts. III: [iii]–viii, [1], 10–233 pp., 141–210 plts. IV: [iii]–viii, [1], 10–321 pp., 211–280 plts. V: [iii]–viii, [1], 10–346 pp., 281–350 plts. VI: [iii]–viii, [1], 10–456 pp., 351–420 plts. VII: vii, [2], 10–372 pp., 421–500 plts. After Audubon (1785–1851) completed his landmark work The Birds of America and collaborated with Scottish naturalist William MacGillivray (1796–1852) to write the accompanying text Ornithological Biography, he elected to produce a "popular" edition by combining the images and text in an elegant and portable format — the octavo. => For this essentially new work Audubon increased the number of colored plates from 435 to 500, reordered the text, and edited the content to include more ornithological information and less travel narration. Plates were produced through the camera lucida process, using a prism to trace reverse images from the elephant folio prints onto lithographic stones.    "The octavo edition of Audubon's Birds was probably the greatest commercial success of any color plate book issued in 19th-century America." While it was not inexpensive, the price was such that the octavo "achieved widespread circulation and brought the work into the homes of many well-to-do Americans" (Reese, p. 58).    Present here is the third octavo edition, all title-pages bearing the date of 1859, and containing =>500 fine hand-colored lithographed plates by Philadelphian J.T. Bowen after J.J. and J.W. Audubon. Ayer notes that where backgrounds were plain in the first octavo they were tinted in later ones and that some already tinted backgrounds were attractively altered, with plates more closely approximating those of the elephant folio through the addition of more detailed scenery.         Catalogue of the Edward E. Ayer Ornithological Library, pp. 22–23; Reese, Stamped with a National Character, pp. 57–58. Brown publisher's leather, spine lettered in gilt and compartments with a blind device; covers triple-ruled and with an ornate arabesque frame containing the title, all in blind; binding refurbished. All edges gilt. One leaf with a curious internal closed tear, possibly created in the press, with no loss of text. Two pairs of plates transposed; five plates trimmed closely, in one case just touching type, in three cases with loss of publication information, and in one case with the line identifying the bird's perch partially lost in addition to partial loss of publication line. => An excellent set of a splendid edition of one of the most influential color plate books of the 19th century.

        Adam Bede.

      Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons,, 1859. 3 volumes, octavo. Original brown diagonal ripple-grain cloth, titles to spines gilt, floral border to covers in blind, yellow coated endpapers. Binder's ticket to rear pastedown of vol. I. Contemporary lending library labels of All Saint's Church, Glencarse (Diocese of Brechin) to front pastedowns. Light marks to cloth, very minor wear to tips, hinges repaired, occasional faint foxing to contents. An excellent set in bright cloth. First edition of the author's first novel. The condition of this set is surprisingly good, given its provenance from a lending library; the title is second on Sadleir's list of comparative scarcity for fine condition in original cloth, due to the high proportion of copies that were acquired by lending libraries. Sadleir notes that whereas Eliot's first book, Clerical Life, was bought by the public in a much higher proportion than normal, and only a small proportion went into circulating libraries, Adam Bede made "a hit with a different and much larger public: the Libraries re-order and second and third editions follow quickly. I venture a guess that the cognoscenti, slightly resentful that an author they had spotted should now have become popular, bought Adam Bede sparingly, taking the line that as it was a Library success they might as well borrow a copy and save their money".

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Meiningen, 29. I. 1859. - 2 SS. 4to. An einen Herrn Professor: "In der Hoffnung, daß Sie einige Zeilen auch von einem Ihnen Unbekannten wohlwollend aufnehmen werden, benütze ich die Gelegenheit, welche sich mir durch meinen Freund Henneberger darbietet, um eine Bitte an Sie zu richten. Ich habe ursprünglich altklassische und deutsche Philologie studiert und daneben unter der Leitung des Herrn Professor Hartenstein in Leipzig mich mit Vorliebe der Philosophie gewidmet. Ich wurde darauf als Lehrer am hiesigen Gymnasium angestellt. Aber die Philosophie führte mich über den von mir erwählten Beruf hinaus. Ich entschloß mich, noch Jurisprudenz und Staatswissenschaften zu studieren und legte die mir übertragene Stelle nieder. Meine Studien sind nunmehr so weit vorgeschritten, daß ich glaube, mit Erfolg als Lehrer der ethisch-politischen Wissenschaften an einer Universität auftreten zu können, und ich beabsichtige im Sinne der Herbartischen Lehre über folgende Disziplinen zu lesen [.]". - Mit kleinen Randläsuren und stellenweise etwas angestaubt.

        Anatomy Descriptive and Surgical

      Philadelphia: Blanchard and Lea, 1859. First American edition. Very good antiquarian condition. Large 8vo. With 363 wood-engraved illustrations after drawings by H.V. Carter. Original publisher's sheep, black spine label, chipped (biopredation?) with loss; extremities lightly rubbed (not objectionable). Faint early inscription in pencil on first blank leaf; one or possibly two blank leaves excised (there are three blank leaves at end). Occasional minor blemishes in the text; overall in superior state. Preserved in a protective linen case. First American edition, scarce in such good, unrestored condition. "The first edition of 1858 was found to have a good many errors, most of which were corrected in the 1859 edition" (Heirs of Hippocrates 1915). It has not escaped our notice that the publication of this first American edition was timely, occurring as it did on the eve of the American Civil War, during which time at least 620,000 men died from disease or were killed in combat, and untold numbers were grievously wounded. Thus Gray's Anatomy was immediately employed on and off the battlefield, making it an indispensable tool of doctors, surgeons, and medical students nationwide. Thus is hardly surprising that so few copies of the first American edition survive intact, as they were literally read and reread to pieces. That the book belongs to an era which manufactured some of the worst paper stock in American history certainly did not improve its survival rate. Gray's Anatomy is so famous as to render praise redundant; the simple fact that it is still being published after 158 years attests to the enduring legacy of the author and artist. In the 2015 edition of "Gray's Anatomy" (41st Edition) we find the statement: "In 1858, Drs. Henry Gray and Henry Vandyke Carter created a book for their surgical colleagues that established an enduring standard among anatomical texts. After more than 150 years of continuous publication, Gray?s Anatomy remains the definitive, comprehensive reference on the subject." Indeed, Gray's anatomical textbook has been more widely studied by successive generations of medical students than any other. It is justly celebrated for the clarity of the illustrations and text, and its deceptively simple layout. "Gray's treatise was distinguished for the lucid and logical arrangement of a mass of detailed descriptions; clear new drawings based on dissections by the surgeon-author and the artist; and sections on the surgical anatomy of defined areas, such as the axilla, the elbow, the popliteal space, the perineum, and the laryngotracheal region" (Lilly Library, Notable Medical Books, 211). References: Garrison & Morton 418. Norman 939. Grolier, One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine 68. See also William F. Fox, Regimental Losses in the American Civil War 1861-1865 (Albany, 1889), p. 24, wherein he gives the official tabulation of the Surgeon-General: the number of wounded treated in hospitals was 246,712 but this figure includes only records of engagements for which statistics are known; furthermore, the figure excluded the number of wounded soldiers who were not treated in hospitals. To compensate for the lack of real data, Fox computed the ratio of mortally wounded to wounded (not killed) as being 1 to 4.8 -- an alarming figure given that the combined number of combat deaths for the Union and Confederacy are estimated to have been 205,000.
